Abstract

This paper contains an overview of the creation of Macquarie University Library's portal including the formation of portlets explicitly based on individual course requirements. The focus of this paper is on the collaborative process by which academic staff, librarians and information technology specialists were able to create and deliver content for the Library portal. We argue that a web presence composed of portlets is a user-focused method for delivering dynamic content on demand and as such is far superior in a learning environment as it provides a merged, cohesive and comprehensive delivery mechanism for tailored content. In addition a portlet structure enables the Library to be proactive about the provision of content while providing a systematic information management and content architecture to ensure that consistency, reusability and quality of web-based content can be maintained. This portlet framework is a complete solution for both the problem of information delivery and the problem of information management.
